Yesterday, I got a call from a TLC producer looking to contact another polygamous family about a new possible TV show. And at last month's Safety Net committee meeting, a filmmaker who developed the reality show "Sister Wives" dropped by to see if there were any other families who would want to "show their lifestyle publicly," according to the meeting minutes. Calling the Browns a "gateway family," Salt Lake City filmmaker Tim Gibbons suggested there is room for more TV shows.
The show has been a hit, becoming five highest-rated premieres in the network's history, though at the cost of one wife, Meri, losing her job and the family coming under investigation by Lehi police.
So are we likely to see plural families dominating the airwaves? Maybe not anytime soon, Principal Voices co-founder Anne Wilde told me. Another show might be "overkill," she said, but maybe something else.
Gibbons did also say he's interested in a documentary ...
I would like "Annonymous" *my S friend, to explain to our readers what the Principal Voices and the Safety Net Community are in comments.
More of them?????
